Butterfly Patterns & Symmetry – just amazing!


My Preps have been learning about patterns and symmetry in nature. Each child was given a butterfly outline and asked to create a pattern on one half of their butterfly. They had to plan their pattern in grey lead and then brightly color their design. When they had finished their side of the butterfly, it was named and passed to another child who had to match the existing pattern. The children loved this activity and the results are stunning. I’ve included photos of their work and one must remember this is the work of 5 & 6-year-old children. We’ll be visiting symmetry again, but ‘hey’, they’re beautiful anyway.






Cheers Nina
